Bury VCFA is a membership organisation. We support, champion and provide a voice for the VCSE sector in local decision-making and in the shaping of services, which support the people and communities of Bury.


Bury VCFA Membership Criteria

We’re really keen that voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) groups and organisations working in Bury join us. Whether you are a small community group or a large charity – all VCSE not-for-private-profit organisations are welcome.

We have two levels of membership – both are free:

Full Membership

Open to any constituted voluntary, community or social enterprise (VCSE) group or organisation based in and operating within the Borough of Bury. To become a full member, your VCSE group must be delivering services or activities in Bury.

Associate Membership

Open to any group or organisation which does not qualify for our full membership.  As an associate member, you will have the option to be added to our mailing list to receive our latest news e-bulletins, volunteer and funding e-bulletins and related news.
